If you take advice from the best kidney specialist in Kenya, you will get to know that Acute Kidney Injury (or Acute renal failure) means that your kidneys have stopped functioning suddenly. Your kidneys remove waste products and help balance water, salt and other minerals (electrolytes) in your blood. When your kidneys stop working, waste products, fluids, and electrolytes accumulate in your body and this is when you need to visit a renal clinic / dialysis center as the retention of fluid and electrolytes can cause damage to your vital organs. Ignoring the issue can also cause several deadly diseases.

We do maintenance hemodialysis for acutely ill patients (including SLED), and mineral bone disease management, whichever serves best for better recovery of patients at our hemodialysis center.

How Does Kidney Failure Affect Patients and Their Families?

Anyone can suffer from kidney failure irrespective of your age, lifestyle, and work you are doing. If you are suffering from kidney failure, you need to handle a lot of things. It requires lifestyle changes—not only for you but for your family, too. These days, many patients have gladly accepted the fact that they are having kidney failure and will need treatment for the rest of their lives. Others have trouble to deal with the changes in their lives that this disease brings. This could be a difficult time for you and your family members to cope up with the situation. Your family members may feel depressed and despondent especially if they haven’t faced any major issue in the past. Sometimes, they may feel helpless because they can’t do anything about your illness.

The situation gets worse when the disease tends to affect the kidneys so much that it stops working. And the only way to survive with kidney failure is dialysis in Kenya until they find a donor. All this is extremely stressful.

They may be angry that kidney failure has happened to “their” family or friend. They may feel guilty if they did not realize the serious nature of your illness earlier. A period of confusion and tension may follow as everyone tries to cope with the demands of the illness, the anxiety of treatment, and the disruption of everyday life. You and your family simply need time to adjust to the situation.

The following steps can be helpful in dealing with these feelings:

  • Ask the doctor for a referral to the dialysis unit where treatment will take place. Visiting the facility before you begin treatment can help make the dialysis machine and the treatment less frightening.
  • If you are interested in a transplant, ask your Nephrologist  for a referral to a transplant center. Set up an appointment to visit with the staff.
  • If you are interested in a transplant, ask your doctor for a referral to a transplant center. Set up an appointment to visit with the staff.
  • Speak to other patients and families who have been through the same experience.
  • Discuss all your concerns with the health care team at the facility.

Acute Kidney Injury
Renal Transplant
Where and when can you get a kidney?

Acute Kidney Injury (or Acute renal failure) means that your kidneys have stopped functioning suddenly. Your kidneys remove waste products and help balance water, salt and other minerals (electrolytes) in your blood. When your kidneys stop working, waste products, fluids, and electrolytes accumulate in your body. This can cause several deadly diseases.

Acute kidney injury has three main causes:

A sudden and serious drop in blood flow to the kidneys: Heavy blood loss due to an injury, or a bad infection called sepsis can reduce blood flow to the kidneys and the patient has to visit a kidney dialysis center for further treatment . According to kidney specialists in Nairobi, Kenya, kidney damage can also happen due to prolonged use of certain medication such as painkillers. Though most of the people don’t have any kidney problems from taking medicines, still, those who have serious, long-term health problems are prone to get a kidney problem while taking the medicines. A sudden blockage (Kidney stones, a tumor, an injury, or an enlarged prostate gland) which stops urine from flowing out of the kidneys.

During a transplant, a healthy donated kidney is placed deep under your skin near your hipbone. In some cases, the non-working kidneys may be removed to control infection or high blood pressure. Kidney transplantation is the most “natural” solution to kidney failure. However, we believe that only 50% of dialysis patients meet the physical requirements for a transplant or choose this as a treatment option. The other half choose our renal dialysis units because we are a well-equipped dialysis treatment centre enriched with latest technology.

Choose Nephromed dialysis center to reduce dialysis cost in Kenya.

According to the Transplantation of Human Organ Act, there are only three sources: A blood relation: Your close relatives like parents, spouse, children, and siblings can donate kidneys for you. You can get the kidney from someone who is alive. The operation should be performed at a time suited to both donor and recipient. An unrelated donor: Any other living person, other than blood relation, is known as an unrelated donor. You get kidneys from an unrelated donor through the government process and rules. The doctor will also do some tests to see the success rate after donation while you are on kidney dialysis in Kenya.
